The Major Arcana

The Fool Tarot Card Meaning

JULY 16

This card is all about new beginnings + change. It is a positive card - new adventures await. There’s also an excitement, a buzz, around all that’s ahead and very little concern with the ‘how’ it will all be achieved. A lot of ‘the universe has my back’ energy.

tradition

The Fool is the very first card in a tarot card deck and is in the Major Arcana (also called a Trump card). In the Rider-Waite-Smith (RWS) artwork The Fool is depicted as an individual full of vigor and curiosity setting out on an adventure - they are very much a carefree spirit.

They carry very little with them, only what fits in a knapsack and a white rose - which has long been a symbol of innocence and purity. They are taking off in the direction of a cliff! However, their sight is turned upwards, not concerned with the path (and possible danger) in front of them.

Pulling this card reversed gives us a pause. Literally. It indicates a standstill, or a false start. There’s inaction surrounding this card. However, The Fool reversed is not void of emotions- in fact, it’s vibrating with energy and emotion. The inaction could be due to fear, apprehension or having a general unease that ‘things won’t work’.

As we wade into the sea, foam kissing our ankles, salt sticking to our skin, we are nurtured by the lullaby of the waves, washing to the shore time and time again, a rhythm that relaxes, a song which brings surrender. Crabs crawl across the sand, moving quickly in the comfort of their safety, contracting into their shells when sensing a threat. And all the while the stars shine bright as the Moon takes her yearly retreat within her star home.

Mother Cancer, waters of the womb, cycles of the Moon, well of our feelings, intuitive, maternal healing, supports us in the safety of the dark where we may be with the formlessness of our feelings and our creations yet to be born. Whether tears or laughter, grief or joy, our emotions reveal a necessary reflection of our being. And when we pause to soften and honor our sensitivities, we receive the gifts of subtle wisdom existing within, always there and waiting for us to listen.

What are your feelings communicating to you? Where can you soften and more subtly attune? Allow what surfaces to point you towards what is calling to be nurtured. Let your intuitive feelings guide you to what is worthy of your protection. Just as the crab carries its safe space upon its back, how can you create more safety in your life so your vulnerability may be expressed? Trust in the tides of the ocean, the songs of your internal sea and the darkness of this Moon.
